Proud of the Republican Party

I have to admit--Leon is right. Today, they where the leadership party; the party with solutions. Today, the Republican party took us a step forward in solving the problem of judicial tyranny. If they could start doing something about pork spending, I would be a happier citizen.
The GOP leadership has made some mistakes in the past year. But, unlike in past years, they seem genuinely interested in listening over the past two months. As long as we remain committed to sending them to office every two years, there's no reason to believe that trend won't continue.

This year is a critical year. It's within the realm of possibility that the majority drops back to the danger level - 52 or 51. However, it's not outside the realm of possibility that it could also be 57 or 58. Interested in seeing Justice Rogers Brown? Then it's time to get to work. Work on spreading the message to the incumbents we have that some things need to change. Most importantly, work on sending people like Kean, Steele and Kennedy into office to replace Menendez, Sarbanes and Dayton (all of whom voted against cloture today). Work on keeping the seats held by Santorum and Frist. Don't send money to the NRSC - they'll just spend it on ads against Republican Steve Laffey - but there are competitive races out there, and help to be given. More will of course be said in the future.
I'm looking forward to this years election, and being able to look at it from inside the beltway. I'm looking forward to hearing the State of the Union address tomorrow evening.
